This week, Alex Harmon checked out the latest edition to the MIsschu empire...
Only in Bondi could you get away with ironically calling your restaurant the ghetto. Hats off to Nahji Chu of Misschu fame for parking her new project next door to her Bondi Tuckshop. (Just look for the hipster bike.)
I’m confident that even those without Irish blood will be converted by the Vietnamese-spud fusion. If you’re skeptical, try the Steamed Purple Spud and Sausage ($14) - the salty, sweet chunks of sausage and fleshy potato are so good it should be a dessert.
Speaking of desserts, keep room for the Banana and Nutella Crepes ($8.50), the caramelized banana is so awesome you will even eat the skin.
There are also savoury crepes worth devouring - Bánh Xèo ($13) - is a crunchy Vietnamese crepe, sliced and served with DIY rice paper for wrapping. It’s seriously good with a Vietnamese 333 Beer ($8).
For something a bit heartier, the Lamb Shanks with Pho Spiced Jus ($16) are great, teamed...
...with Pomme Noisettes ($6) to mop up the cinnamon-y goodness.
While the schoolbook menu and corner-store chic setting appears very DIY, it’s nothing like the dodgy food court stuffed potato outlets of my childhood. This is one sexed up potato. Arm yourself with a spud gun and make haste to the ghetto.
